Grey = Moody Melancholy

For today's instalment of Building a Rainbow, the colour is grey.

I found an awesome quote about a mirror, and I thought I would use it for grey since
a) mirrors are greyish and
b) mirrors rarely show us either the black or white of ourselves - there is always an analysis being done when we look into the mirror...

"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it" - Edith Wharton

I studied Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth in university, so when I saw her name I paid a lot more attention to this quote. I won't go into my interpretation of its meaning. You can interpret it for yourself...

Materials: Acrylic paint, watercolour, white Sakura gel pen, punched lettering, foil photos

  1. Your grey page absolutely rocks! I love the contrast of the funky white hand lettering against the background. Great fun!
